Contrary to what most colleges and universities would have you believe, working with their financial aid resources is not typically in your best interest. Remember that most colleges, even State schools, are looking to maximize their revenue to support their overhead; so their guidance is often biased in their favor. We are focused to help students and their families with:
1. Financial Award Negotiation. Did you know that financial aid is negotiable? At StowBrook College Plan, we know how to present required personal financial documents, the FAFSA application, CSS Profile completion, the Student Aid Report, (SAR) and more. We’ll even review Award Letters to confirm they are “fair” and help you draft “negotiation” letters to help secure a better offer.
2. Loans, Grants, & Scholarships.Based on each student’s individual interests, resumé, achievements, choice of college(s), financial resources, and more. StowBrook College Plan has proprietary tools to help identify student loan options, prospective grant & scholarship opportunities, and assist with applications. Our services are designed to help your family reduce the college costs as much as possible.
